A Dairy Lover’s Delight

This week, our Savvy Organic Shopper went to Wegmans in Erie, PA in search of low-fat dairy products to help her stay on track with her new year’s resolution to make healthy food choices. While there, she found a gallon of Wegmans organic 1% milk on sale for $5.99 (with her Shopper’s Club Card); the same amount of conventional milk was $3.40. That means for just $.16 more per 8-ounce serving, you and your family can enjoy milk made without the use of antibiotics and synthetic growth hormones. Plus, according to a new study by researchers at the University of Newcastle, when you choose organic milk, you’ll get less saturated fat and more beneficial fatty acids than if you buy conventionally produced milk. With all those benefits, it’s worth it to drink up!
